On Saturday, April 5 Nashville, Tenn., emcee Openmic hosted a release show for his latest project, an 11-track mixtape titled For The Rebels 2 at Mercy Lounge.
Among those who performed that evening were Nashville rapper Petty, Chicago’s very own GLC, female disco jockey Trackstarr and more.
Openmic is a graduate of Tennessee State University. Within just a few years he has developed a brand and voice unlike any other. He has opened for Pusha T, Wale, Stalley, Yo Gotti, Dom Kennedy, Big K.R.I.T. and has traveled across the spectrum of music to do EDM shows with the duo Two Fresh in Nashville, Memphis, and Austin, Texas, at SXSW.
This rising underground emcee has created something new in the South and is rapidly expanding. With his first official mixtape, For The Rebels 2, Openmic has polished his sound and pushed the envelope with bold new sounds and ideas. This project was produced by Mike Ewing (of Maybach Music Group’s production team The Underclassmen), Ducko McFli, Brandon K. Jones and features GLC and STAN.
